Thursdays Drawing, Sorrow #9

The clock is ticking today to work on Thursday’s Drawing, that and we have a storm bearing down on us – always scary so I need to move along.

Didn’t get  as much done as I wanted too on Sorrow, but I was able to at least keep the 1/2 hour planned.  Today’s work continued on the back of the statue, as the folds of fabric close in around her body.  I hold myself back, because I would love to just have at it with a lower-valued graphite pencil, but it’s best I stay disciplined and stick with the game plan of slowly developing the fabric because it’s the majority of the subject and there would be no excuse for sloppy work.  Most of the patina will be developed as part of finishing touches on the drawing.  Sorrow drawn on Starthmore Bristol Vellum paper with 4H, 2H, HB, B, 2B and a bit of 3B.

Have a wonderful weekend, thank you for checking in .  .  .

    Of course it’s excellent ! – it’s like a Saturday matinee from my childhood, only classier.
    And also on Friday (for me). [grin]
